Police in Liberty Lake say a woman stole some $300,000 in jewelry from a consignment store after hiding inside the business for hours and emerging after it closed.
The woman entered Consign Furniture and Jewelry, 21605 E. Country Vista Drive, at 5:08 p.m. Monday, but surveillance footage didn’t show her approaching the jewelry display until around 8 p.m., police said in a news release.
Anyone with information on the woman’s identity is asked to call the Liberty Lake Police Department at (509) 755-1140, or call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
No additional details were immediately available, including where she hid.
